Property Specific Notes:
The subject property is a ten acre lot located along the main road (1725 Drive) within Laguna Jacquez Estates. It sits just off the entrance to the subdivision from Highway 96 and less than two miles along this same road to the boat ramp at Abiquiu Lake.

The Laguna Jacquez Estates subdivision is governed by a Property Owner's Assocation with very lite covenants meant to maintain both the natural beauty of the area and the property values of the land and homes within it. To learn more about the covenants and restrictions in place in Laguna Jacquez, you may click here or watch the video at the top of this page starting at 09:59.

The subject property boasts power at the lot line. Because the Laguna Jacquez Development Corporation paid for power line extensions to lots within the subdivision, there is a $5,600 fee to tie into the electric infrastructure. It should be noted that this fee does not cover any construction costs or tie-in fees required by the local power company.

The Laguna Jacquez Association has a private boat ramp situated along the western shoreline of the lake of which LJA boat ramp members are the only authorized users. A boat ramp membership may be purchased for a one-time fee of $2,500. If you elect to purchase the ramp membership, an access key will be issued to you to pass through the yellow gate located between the subject property and the lake to its east (see photos in the gallery at the bottom of this page). If you elect not to purchase a membership, you will likely still be able to access the lake but from the further removed eastern entrance which the general public uses.

The Laguna Jacquez POA collects money from residents of the area for routine road maintenance. It should be noted that while residents are asked to give $200.00 annually, the fee is voluntary and not mandatory. That said, as we're told most residents participate in this program, in the interest of being a good neighbor, you may want to consider it part of your yearly obligations.

Nearby Abiquiu Lake offers an assortment of great recreation activities, from boating and fishing to jet skiing, wind surfing and kayaking. You may bring your own boat or, if you dont have one, rent one at the marina and spend a leisurely day on the lake.

Additionally, the white sandstone cliffs and mesmerizing views of Plaza Blanca can be found within easy driving distance of this property and may offer plenty of opportunities for hiking, climbing and general sight-seeing.

One of the other nice things about this property is that it sits in close proximity to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in America in the nearby Taos Ski Valley. This means that this property is not just a seasonal retreat best enjoyed only in the summer months, but rather will provide year 'round activities and adventure.
